Cayman Dispatch Service (CDS) has joined Universal Aviation's growing global FBO network of over 50 locations in over 25 countries as a certified location, Universal Aviation Cayman Islands.

CDS is based at Owen Roberts International airport in Grand Cayman and has provided both over and under wing services to the main airlines for more than 25 years with a team of over 120 people and a wide range of equipment.

As a Universal Aviation certified member, CDS has proven its commitment to service excellence by passing Universal's rigorous standards for ground handling quality, training, safety, consistency, customer service and regulatory compliance, including compliance with international laws such as the Foreign and Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) and UK Bribery Act. Adherence to these standards will be managed via recurrent training and regular audits.

“The Cayman Islands is experiencing record growth in travellers, via both airlines and business jets,” explains UA senior vice president Adolfo Aragon. “The addition of a new location in the Cayman Islands, with a partner with a great track record in the country like CDS, enhances our ability to provide our clients with a consistent level of service that meets the growing demand.”

CDS deputy director Jonathan Ebanks adds: “We are very proud to bring the internationally recognised brand of Universal to the Cayman Islands. We look forward to beginning our exciting work with Universal, the airport and the Government of the Cayman Islands, to address the growing demand of business aviation in the country.”
